    First of all, I saw a long piece of woods, roughly 2 metres

    What I need for the wood saw: piece of wood, saw blade, my SAK, some paracord
    [​IMG]

    Cutting a piece of woods long like the blade saw
    [​IMG]

    Then, cutting two pieces of woods long like half the first piece
    [​IMG]

    This is the frame of the wooden saw

    Working the two extremities of the horizontal piece of woods…

    … and working the vertical pieces of woods to place the horizontal piece
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Preparing the vertical pieces of woods to place the saw blade

    Making two small pieces to block in tension the saw blade
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Now, I make the places where the saw blade will be blocked
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Preparing the places where the paracord will be placed
    [​IMG]

    The final frame it’s done
    [​IMG]

    Tensioning the blade whit a lean piece of wood wrapped around the paracord
    [​IMG]

    Working the wood saw, not bad at all, as usual the SAK it's just a winner, you may realize whit him just all you have in mind

    This is great. Maybe I'll strap a spare bow-saw blade to my pack.

    That is a nice outline for building a saw. I am going to have to show that to the youth in my Scout Troop.
